So the girls have gotten a little play routine down now when Chloe has been coming over. First they decide to go into Holly's room to play, no mommies allowed, we have to stay in the living room with Baby Dylan. Next they pull out princesses of some type, on this day I let them do the squeakies. After that it is usually some dress-up. They decided they wanted to do a fashion show, I think they changed 4-5 times each and we had to clap after each outfit, sadly my pictures of most of them came out dark. Lastly they usually end the play date making a big mess in the kitchen as its the one place I usually let them, it is fast to clean up. Chloe has been coming over on Wednesday after Gymnastics which is also the night Tanta Kat comes over for Family dinner. On this day she was still around when Kat came so the girls went outside for a few minutes and played with her while Kathy got Dylan ready for the drive home. Speaking of which, he is so big now, he is playing with toys and sitting up. He is pulling up and will be crawling soon. It was a fun play date. Holly tells me how she misses Chloe several times each week, so it has been nice to at least have one steady play date with her where we know we will get together once a week, its not as much as she would like or as much as we used to see her, but she is happy for the fun times she does get to spend with her. As Holly would say, "It's hard to grow up and it is hard to say goodbye to your friends when its time to go" I've been trying to help her with her emotional self regulation and when she is sad or upset we try to verbalize her feelings and talk through them, I think it helps and she is picking up little mantra's for tough times like saying goodbye at the end of a fun day.
